WHY THIS TOUR?
Balinese cuisine is packed full of flavour with plenty of locally grown fresh vegetables, fruits, spices and herbs. The cuisine is shaped by Indonesian, Chinese and Indian influences – all blended together to create a truly unique taste.
Learning how to whip up some of the delicious dishes is a great way to take the essence of Bali back home with you to recreate for family and friends. This half-day culinary experience also gives an insight into local culture and the importance of food in everyday life, festivals and ceremonies. A visit to a local market and a hands-on cooking class are all the right ingredients for a fun-filled day out.
07:00 - 14:00
Start the day with a visit to the local market, accompanied by the professional chef. Wander through the stalls to learn about the locally grown herbs and spices and their uses in Balinese cooking. It’s important to get to know these aromatic herbs as many will be added to your dishes to infuse them with flavour. Try out your bargaining skills as you haggle with the stall owners for the best prices.
Back at the cooking school, the chef will explain the techniques and how to use the various ingredients. Then it is time to roll up your sleeves and don an apron. In this hands-on class, you will whip up a complete menu based on regional favourites. Under the close guidance of the chef and talented culinary team, you will learn how to transform the raw ingredients into tasty, authentic Balinese dishes.
After the class, you finally get to sit down and relax while sampling your culinary creations – delicious Balinese dishes cooked by yourself! To ensure you can recreate these dishes at home, you will receive a set of the course recipes as a fabulous take-away souvenir of a fun and educational day out.
Please note that the afternoon class does not include the visit to the market.
